Why You’ll Love iSpeak:
iSpeak is open to the entire MUSC international community: a free English conversation “lunch and learn” group held every first Tuesday of every month from 12 to 1 p.m. to practice conversational English and discuss interesting topics.

iSpeak serves as an excellent vehicle to network, make new friends, and improve English skills, and lunch is always provided.
